Wellington’s amazing food rescuer’s Kaibosh are holding their very important annual fundraiser #MakeaMealInMay. So to enthuse us to start cooking up a storm, in this interview we talk to one of the 26 community groups that regularly receives surplus food from Kaibosh; the BGI (Wellington Boys’ and Girls’ Institute).
Donna Redmond and Casey James of the BGI talk to us about the work they do for our youth, how the Kaibosh food gets used and the reality of being on the front line for families.

Another small fact about the Boys and Girls Institute, they have 137 volunteers, who put in 14,144 hours- which is nearly 7 years of 40 hour weeks.
